The Day after the Day of Love

The day after the day of love...it may not seem like much to the rest of the world, but for me...I've been a year older for a whole day!  Having a birthday on Valentine's Day is pretty awesome, and yesterday was no exception.  Unfortunately, college classes don't care one bit about birthdays, so I had to wait until last night for people to sing to me.  The party was great--we had cake, ice cream, balloons, Smurf (some people prefer Farkle but I like Smurf better!), orange swirl rolls, and bubbles.

And then I stayed up until 2 am working on my creative writing homework.  It's a dang good thing I like that class so much.

Some people talk about how much they hate Valentine's Day, but I love it.  Not only is it an excuse to party, it's also the day of LOVE.  I agree with those that say that there shouldn't be only one day for this purpose, but I don't think of it that way.  I think of it as a day to remind us to love each other.  Humans can be lazy creatures--what's wrong with a reminder to be grateful for the friends and family that we can often take for granted?

I wouldn't pick any other day to celebrate my date of birth even if I could.  February 14th is my favorite day of the year, and it always will be.  Bring on the hearts and chocolate!
